Do not use this if you want your repair to last

Comments about Nickson Exhaust Repair Wrap Kit:

This is a rip-off that is not worth your time or money. You would be better served by wrapping your exhaust pipe with a tin can and securing it with baling wire. That's much cheaper and more effective than this offal. Seriously, who sells aluminum for a tail pipe that GETS HOT? Even with the "exhaust wrap" tape they include, this stuff just melted right off when the pipe heated up. You should seriously use a tin can, because that will not melt, but this junk surely does. Once that happens, say goodbye to any hope of obtaining a refund of your wasted money.

      The clamps are cheap and basically useless. They strip if you sneeze while tightening them. The aluminum is barely thicker than what you wrap meat in. This stuff is useless even as a 15 minute quick fix !!

                  Will this product work to contain small leak in flex pipe on Nissan Altima 2001 between catalytic converter and manifold.

                    A:

                    Hi there Renne I will be happy to help with your questions! This kit is more for straight sections of exhaust. It would be wrapped around the exhaust, then rolled as tight as possible then fastened with clamps on each end. Because you mentioned it is between the exhaust manifold and the catalytic converter curves may cause the sheet of metal to not seal properly. If you do decide to use this use protective gloves this is a sheet of metal and we don't want you to cut yourself, be very careful.Depending on the type of leak you have we suggest Part No 1802KTRI for a small leak. You may also want to get in touch with a exhaust repair shop to advise a course of action depending on the size of the leak.

                    This perfection exhaust repair wrap kit may work but however i would suggest you to replace the catalytic converter to avoid intermittent as it for determining the emission check up.
